Event Notes:

It is my privilege to offer this bon voyage hike for our friend Diane. She is moving to Indiana to be close to her daughters. Our leader John Bondon will be leading and my buddies will be assisting. John will be hosting a lunch afterwards. Now is your chance to meet him. He is the reason this is all possible. Oh yes, the hike is 6 miles with 1,000 ft of elevation and we all can do it. No services on this hike.
